New release on Rebel Up; single ‘Mamari’ by Muito Kaballa Power Ensemble

The song ‘Mamari’ is the title song to the forthcoming album of the same name by Muito Kaballa Power Ensemble from Cologne, Germany, which will be released at end of May on outernational Brussels label Rebel Up Records. It represents the vast musical development of the Muito Kaballa project since the release of the first album ‘Everything is Broke’ in 2019 on German label Switchstance Recordings.

Muito Kaballa, also known as Niklas Mündemann, started out as a one-man show on the streets and quickly gained attention through his loopstation performances. After the recording of the first album Niklas Mündemann wanted to move away from the entertainer image and explore new musical ideas. When he met musician Jan Janzen, the two instantly decided to create a band and take the project to the next level with heavy influences of afrobeat, jazz, funk and grooves. The band now consists members Nora Beisel on vocals, André van der Heide on drums, Leonard Gaab on percusscions, Marie Tjong-Ayong on trumpet and flugelhorn (recently replaced by Lilli Thomas on trumpet), Till Weise on bass, Benjamin Schneider on guitar, Tim von Malotki on baritone sax, Jan Janzen on keys and Niklas Mündemann on tenor sax, flute and synthesizer.

Till Weise, bassist and composer of Mamari; “When I first wrote Mamari, I wanted to create a song that I could play alone while singing along to it. Mamari is a song with a groove heart that moves forward fast and at the same time stumbles. Like riding a bike with bent wheels or like the way how camels move, which is called the pace gait, or in arabic: Mamari.”

You can buy the single or their Bandcamp or listen via Soundcloud.
The video will be premiered on friday 12.03 at 14:00 Belgian/German time.

Sun 16.08 > Rebel Up & Friends @ Saintklet Summer weekend #1, Saintklet terrace, Bxl

This weekend starts the programme of the new Saintklet outdoor terrace!

Saintklet wants to play a pivotal role in the development of the canal area, together with local institutions. The core idea for creating this space was that we wanted to keep it public, meaning free for everyone to use.
This crisis has taught us that safe public spaces are in decline.
Local initiatives and citizen collectives have to work together to make sure they stay accessible, even during a pandemic.

On sunday from 17:00 – 22:00 we will do a takeover with Rebel Up & Friends with a sweet local lineup!
